The New Haven Goes Diesel

The New Haven RR was one of the first railroads to go heavily into dieselization.  They were quite proud of that and so was the manufacturer of the locomotives, Alco-GE. Here’s some scans of a couple of Brochures.

The first one.

The second one.





Due to the nature of the railroad’s operation and it’s not having a lineside fuel source the new Haven pushed every cost reducing technology they could.  These locomotives are a case in point and they would do heavy service in the war soon to come.

Along with a video.
